About This Trail
added by jlpXC Gramcounter on March 13, 2007
 
There are a few different ways to piece these Three Loops together. I usually do it this way due to this being the way I get to the trails riding from my place.
From the Trailhead at Bryan's Field Trail follow the trail to the Left just past the Map. Follow the Loop around back to the trail head. Go back thru the parking lot and make a Left on the Road until you see the signs for the Whitely Farms Trail. I usually Split this loop in half, doing half the loop then breaking off to do David English, than on my way back to the trail head I hit the other half. Turn Right onto Whitely Farms Trail and follow the loop around back out to the dirt road (labeled Smith Mill Road/Tri Valley Trail on the Map). Turn Right on the road and cross over Pleasant Hill Road staying to your Right. Follow the David English Trail around to the Park Office. Continue on the trail behind the Park Office and back around to where you crossed Pleasant Hill Road. Once back across hang a Right onto the other Half of Whitely Farms Trail. You can either follow this back up to the road and make a right back to the trail head or dump off a bit early on a trail to the right that connects back to Bryan's Field and follow that to the Trailhead.

There are midway cut offs on Bryan's and David English so if you want to do the whole loop make sure you don't cut off early. If you want to double back to this them though they are fun to rip down. Namely the one on Bryan's Field heading West to East past the Mason Dixon Monument.

Review: So I rode this trail today. What a great time! I didn't think you could get this much elevation in Delaware, but they did it! Technical with fast and flowy downhills, woops, wood bridges over steep drops, a skills trail that started with a wood bridge bound by rope into a steep drop with a stone down ramp. Then move into the next area which was a series of skinnies and stone beds. Hucks, ramps, and logs. Climbs are long and steady. It's no Pisgah in elevation by any stretch, but what a fun trail. If you're ever in the area-I recommend it. $6 parking per out of state vehicle ($3 for in state vehicles).

Review: Nice ride. Three different loops allow you to string together a couple laps to get distance without riding the same trail over and over. Nice combination of tight turns and sweeping straights. Definitely a fun ride, , even if it isn't too challenging. Good place to bring friends who want to get into it but don't know how to ride too well. Special feature: HILLS! In Delaware! Crazy, right?

Review: This is a fun ride, with steady climbs and decents, all singletrack with easy to moderate technicality. This is my new favorite place for SE PA. Ride took 90-120 minutes total, with stops for drinks and a rest here and there.

Similar Trail: Patapsco outside MD, French Creek State Park
